    I need help understanding the timeline...

    In the past before the HD trilogy came out, I've played every hitman game except Hitman: Contracts. I didn't realize that the plots aren't in order by game release. I had no clue about this until i played Contracts on the HD trilogy and now I am so confused as to what is the order of the missions from Codename 47, SA, and Blood Money. If someone can clearly explain this to me I would greatly appreciate it.

    The first game is Codename 47 and some missions in Contracts are re-mastered.

    It looks something like this:

    It starts with Codename 47, the first game - all missions in order (old and remakes). After that is Asylum Aftermath, which in itself is "kinda" remake. Then it's Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. After that Meatking's Party, Russia, Beldingof Manor, Randevous in Rotterdam and Cargo (Deadly? Can't remember). Then first 3 missions of Blood Money, then Hunter and Hunted from Contracts and all missions from Blood Money.

    So in short it looks like this

    Codename 47 (with contracts remakes)
    Silent Assassin (all missions)
    Contracts (5 missions I've mentioned earlier)
    Blood Money (3 missions - Death of a showman, Vintage year, Curtains down)
    Contracts (Hunter and Hunted)
    Blood Money (missions 4 to the end)

    Hope that helped.

    Thank you so much. i understand this a lot better now. But where do the novels "Hitman: Damnation" and "Hitman: Enemy Within" fit into the timeline, or does it have nothing to do with the timeline

    Damnation takes place before Absolution, like one or two years before and goes into detail about what Victoria actually is, Diana and all that, so this book can be helpful in understanding some things.

    As for Enemy Within, you can say it takes places in nearly the whole timeline. There is 47's first kill, which wasn't in the game, also there's Father Vittorio, so this one is really hard to anwser, but taking time frame of the games into account, you can safely say it takes place somewhere little after Silent Assassin and between Contracts and Blood Money. And little before Codename 47, but that's just a "flashback".
